David Taylor’s quilts are often mistaken as paintings, and that makes him very happy. His works are adapted from photographs, and his technique evolved from his love of jigsaw puzzles. In this workshop, students will learn the secrets to his craft. Topics include his unique pattern drawing method and layered, freezer paper appliqué technique. A strong emphasis is placed on fabric selection and using those fabrics wisely. A simple, single subject matter works best for this multiple-day workshop: a pet portrait, a bird, an animal. A flower may be acceptable; however, flowers have a higher degree of difficulty due to their color behavior. Human portraiture, architectural elements and landscapes are not recommended. Students are required to submit image options in advance by email. Please visit for more information.

In the words of the instructor

“My goal for this workshop is to demonstrate a different way to create appliqué patterns. I can tell you for certain that once your subject matter starts to come alive before your very eyes, you'll be hooked and you won't want to stop working on it. What seemed impossible on Day One will open up every possibility by Day Three. Do you have to applique by hand? No. Though it is my preferred method of assembly, I've had students fuse, glue, machine stitch, satin stitch and piece together by hand. Actual construction of your project will probably not happen until well after the workshop ends. But, trust me, it'll be worth it.”
